Little Duck Pond Cafe, Book 21
Mackenzie Morris, newest recruit at the Little Duck Pond Café, is the perfect addition to the team. But beneath her smiles, Kenzie is hiding a dark secret. It’s the reason she fled to Sunnybrook, desperate for a fresh start that would help to lay the ghosts that haunt her.
The challenge of turning her hobby into a business is a welcome distraction, and to her relief, she finds that her range of quirky pottery mugs and vases appear to be in demand. Alone and scared when she arrived, she’s slowly making friends and starting to feel as if she belongs. Meeting a lovely guy called Aidan seems to confirm this and it looks as if love might be on the horizon.
But then Kenzie makes a devastating discovery that threatens to crush her new-found happiness. Aidan is the one person she yearns to confide in. He’s also the one person who can never know the truth . . .
The Little Duck Pond Café’s staff keeps growing!
This time the author has add Kenzie who works part time in the shop while she tries to turn her hobby into her business and the job at the café helps her to tide over.
The focus of the story is on Kenzie, but that does not mean the author does not take us back to the cosy café, because there is something going on too. Sad feelings at first, but there is a big reason for a party in the end.
Kenzie tries to be happy, but some things from the past are still fighting for attention in her head.
I read this book in one sitting. I could not put it away. The 21st story is still heart breaking and heart warming. It is still lovely and funny. It is still romantic, but it is rather dark too. And all these things make a lovely and beautiful story I truly adored.
When you look at the title, you might think it’s a festive story in June, but I can assure you it is not. But it has a very special meaning you will find out about when you have read the story, which you definitely have to do, because it is just utterly great.
Do I still have to say I loved it with all my heart? Probably not, but I am doing it anyway. 😊 5 stars.
